OiLibya Rally of Morocco 2016
FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies – ROUND 8
October 1-7, 2016
Yazeed is ready to set racing fire in six-day rally of Morocco
Agadir (Morocco), 29.09.2016 – Yazeed Racing has begun with testing before round eight of the FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies which starts in Agadir on Sunday October 2 and finishes at Erfoud on Friday October 7. Yazeed Al-Rajhi is highly motivated to go smoothly through the all 6 days with his MINI.
„I´m feeling good and comfortable after holidays. Obviously I´m ready and excited about another race of this season. We have started with some testing and I´m satisfied because our car is very well prepared. Everything is going according to our plan. Can´t wait to give a battle with Rally of Morocco and get a new experience.
It will be interesting comparison with other teams especially with a new Peugeot. Buggy is a totally different story… Anyway everyone likes something different. I would like to win as usual.
Our car was made for the win and that´s also my mind set. I´m concentrate on to make the maximum and don´t hesitate to attack and fight everywhere. I´m looking forward to Marathon Stage because it´s a good preparation for Dakar. Depends also on tactics in this case. So I am curious about how we can handle that with my navigator because we have to fix all only by ourselves without any service car.
Morocco rally is an exceptional event with a good organisation and interesting track. I like the road book with very precise information. We will see what upcoming days bring back to me.“
